BETTING STRATEGY

The Knicks have been an abomination at the betting window. They're 1-5 against the number in their last six road games, are 1-10 against the spread in their last 11 games overall, and have not covered a point spread in their last seven tries when playing on only one night of rest.

It's the exact opposite situation in Portland, where the Trail Blazers are red-hot at the window. They're a perfect 4-0 against the spread in their last four games, are 4-0 ATS in their last four home games, and have covered the spread in four of their last five home games versus the Knicks. They're also 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games versus New York overall.
